DS 6 months has just discovered the joy of twisting himself around whilst on the change table. As soon as I lift his legs in the air, he stiffens himself so he's like a straight board, twists to the side and reaches his top hand over his head to grab the end of the change table, so he just has one hand and his head touching the table and the rest of himself way up in the air vigorously twisting, often so that his body is not even over the table any more but suspended over the floor! I've tried giving him a toy so he concentrates on that, but he usually looks at it for five seconds and throws it on the floor, so I'm left struggling with his writhing body and pooey bottom. I'm terrified he's going to twist out of my grip on his ankles and fall on the floor!
Any tips? Is he old enough to understand being told "no"? Or do I just need to battle on and strengthen my grip on his ankles?!
